Re: How do I get F12 button to be mouse button 2 on a Ti Powerbook

in /etc/sysctl.conf:

dev/mac_hid/mouse_button_emulation = 1
dev/mac_hid/mouse_button2_keycode = number_for_f12
dev/mac_hid/mouse_button3_keycode = number_for_button_you want

the numbers you can obtain from a console (ttyn) with showkey

then you restart.

P.S. sorry, i dont have my tibook right now, it is with my wife in a 
a conference, if you wait until monday i give you the numbers.
